640 The Hurricane, Gordon & Partners & Chick-fil-A have partnered to help collect new, unused children’s books for the patients & families in the Kids Cancer Foundation programs.
Each month, 640 The Hurricane will host a Storybook reading at a Chick-fil-A location in Palm Beach County. Your child will enjoy free milk & cookies, a storybook character meet & greet, and a meet & greet with the Chick-fil-A mascot! Your cost of admission is the donation of a new, unused children’s book for Books to Heal!
There will also be a very special Books to Heal breakfast at Our Kids World Family Fun Fest on Saturday, April 27th at 9am (limited to the first 50 children).
